Rowan Creative Linen (linen and cotton blend)
1 button (5/8” shown)
E hook (3.50 mm)
Ch 2 counts as first Dc in each row.
Gauge:  Approximately 15 dc and 8 rows = 4”
Collar is approximately 19” X 2 ½”.

Row 1:  Leaving a 10” tail, Dc Ch 69, Ch 2, turn. (Instructions for the Dc Ch, or foundationless crochet are here... http://lazytcrochet.blogspot.com/2013/06/foundationless-double-crochet-tutorial.html)
Row 2:  Dc in next 11, 2 dc in next, *dc in next 10 sts., 2dc in next.* Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Dc in last 12. Ch 2, turn.
Row 3:  Dc in next 11, 2 dc in each of the next 2 sts., *dc in next 10 sts., 2 dc in each of the next 2 sts.*  Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Dc in last 12. Ch 2, turn.
Row 4:  Dc in next 11, 2 dc in each of the next 4 sts., *dc in next 10 sts., 2 dc in each of the next 4 sts.*  Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Dc in last 12. Ch 2, turn.
Row 5:  Dc in next 13, 2 dc in each of the next  4 sts., *dc in next 14 sts., 2 dc in each of the next 4 sts.*  Repeat from * to * 3 more times.  Dc in last 14. Fasten off.
Using the tail of the yarn to crochet a button loop, insert the hook at the side of Row 1 and pull up a loop. Chain 5 (or however many you need to fit the button you want to use), join with slip stitch and fasten off. Work the ends in. Sew a button to the opposite side. Steam block, if desired.
 
For the natural color shown, I used DMC Senso Linen Cotton.
Follow instructions above through Row 4.
For the scalloped edging, Ch 1, skip 2 stitches, work 5 dc in next stitch, (skip 2 stitches, sc in next , skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next) repeat across, skip 3 stitches at the end and sc in top of turning chain. (17 scallops made.)  Fasten off.
